VIDEO Punchline Talks: Friday Briefing, Feb 19

The weekend is almost here so it is time to look back on another busy week of business news with the Punchline-Gloucester.com's Friday Business Briefing panel.

Each week, editor Mark Owen is joined by a selection of Gloucestershire's leading business figures to run the rule over the headlines which caught their eyes in the papers and on Punchline - and the stories behind them.

  • Sam Holliday - Gloucestershire development manager, Federation of Small Businesses
  • Rob Lister - Managing director, Lister Unified Communications
  • Daniel O'Neill - Founder, ProCook
  • Tim Watkins - Managing partner, Randall & Payne

Among the issues discussed this week are differing views on the end of lockdown, the power of social media companies, the future of the furlough scheme and Business Rates as the Budget approaches, troubles in exporting to Europe post-Brexit, laptops for schools - and Paddington.

And they pick out the best stories from another busy week on Punchline.
